New land, new swagger

Traveling across the pond never fails to put a little pep in my style step.

Global Warming Fashion Week '18

Is it possible that global warming has created an entirely new fashion season, in addition to all the other crap its dumping on us (pun intended)?

That being said, with any new challenge comes new opportunity. These fine individuals stepped up to the challenge and showed the world that it is still possible to look fly while battling the elements:

Take a page out of their books and don't let fashion suffer as Mother Nature goes through the most. And recycle.
